Thought for the day: “The more you write, the more you’re capable of writing.” – Paul Theroux
Jumpstart: Go to a yard sale or secondhand shop and pick out one item of interest. Write a scene about it. What is its history? What happened that it is now for sale?
Today is also National Encourage a Young Writer Day. Do what you can to encourage a young person to write. Or read. Or paint. Or play music. Actually, anything having to do with the arts.
